Free Winter Car check at Kwik Fit.

What is included within our free winter safety check?

To keep you moving this winter we’ll check your car's:

Tyres - We will check the overall condition of your tyres including the tread depth and pressure
Battery – We will test the batteries charge to ensure you keep moving this winter
Coolant / Anti-freeze – We will check the strength and levels
With the short days and bad weather, visibility of the road is vital so we’ll also check your car’s:

Wiper blades for splits or damage
Operation of the windscreen wash system and the level of screen wash and top this up if necessary
Light bulbs – faulty or broken bulbs are illegal
Once your check has been completed our trained technicians will discuss the report with you and provide help and guidance if any elements do not meet the safety requirements.

Free winter check your wallet , and fill your tyres with nitrogen inflation for £1.50 each tyres...blah blah, licenced to thrill your wallet.

Same olde stories with companies driving year to year increasing profit and revenues, sales bonuses drive this behaviour of greed, win win all the way from the shop floor up to CEO and shareholders.
the Nitrogen scam is nothing new though...Kwik-Fit have been fleecing customers for years. Nobody goes in and gets work done without them 'finding' something extra that needs doing...usually with some scare story of how dangerous your car is until it's fixed to worry the naive into paying for unneeded work

the strange thing is these companies are still going because muppets continue to shop there.

In their chase for profit , raids to people's wallets to pay for un-needed work is collateral damage. Luckily there are alternative smaller outfits albeit can be a bit more difficult to find than convenient locations. This incentive bonus behaviour is increasing in the health services where private money and investors want their increasing year on year earnings per share increase.

I agree, a small local garage takes a lot of beating once you have found one you can trust.

Anyone who pays for nitrogen in their tyres in their road car deserves to be scammed.

...and the roundtable of executives at Kwik Fit who put nitrogen on deserves what then? And the managers who whacked on nitrogen whether or not customer asked for it (more than 9 out 10 customers) deserve what then?

Once got my brakes checked there, imagine my shock when they told me they didn't need changing as they had a good few thousand miles worth of driving left on them. Must have been a friday afternoon or something
After Kwik Fit told my wife she needed a new catalytic converter on her car because of a corroded heatshield which was rattling I would never go near them again .....one stainless steel jubilee clip to hold the heat shield & 5 passed MOT's later....no issues with the catalyst at all
"SORRY SIR WHILE TOPPING UP YOU WINDSCREEN FLUID WE NOTICED THAT YOUR ENGINE, WHEELS AND CAR BADGE ARE ALL DAMAGED BEYOND REPAIR"

Can you fit me in straight away? LOL
Even years ago, my nan used my local Kwik-Fit and they tried to rip her off then too! Never use a Kwik-Fit-Fitter!
A garage is only as good as the technicians who work there... Good techs are not generally found working at kwikfit or halfords etc.
